British Street Food Awards in Edinburgh

The final heat of the British Street Food Awards took place last weekend. Before we share with you the highlights of the day, we look back at one of the regional heats. Here, Zarah Stuart, gives us her review of the Edinburgh weekend.

The Scottish heat of the British Street Food Awards took place at the Tram Stop last month. Cauldron Foods are sponsoring the snack category at the event and decided to send me along to see what was happening. It was a hive of activity when I arrived at lunchtime. Unfortunately, Mr Edinburger wasn’t well enough to join me so I was left to my own devices and wandered around having a look at everything on offer.

Whitmuir Organic Farm

The one who really did catch my eye was Whitmuir Organic Farm. The smells emanating from the van were delicious and plenty of vegetarian options to choose from.

Loving Food had a nice variety of food, I was particularly intrigued by the Scottish pancake tiramisu.

Food options at Alplings

Alplings

The Alplings food truck really took our fancy. Alplings are Alpline vegetarian bread based dumpling (cheese, spinach & beetroot) goodness married in sauces (parmesan buttermelt, horseradish, mushroom and gorgonzola) served with salads.

Buffalo Food Truck

The Buffalo Food Truck grabbed my attention. They had so many lovely meat dishes on offer but also a veggie option of southern fried cauliflower, cheddar, lettuce and sauce all on a tortilla wrap.

Wild Rover Food

Next was Wild Rover Food. I had to quickly snap some pics and move on as the food smelled awesome. They also had a few vegetarian options that were popular with the enthusiastic customers, looking for a change.

On a mission

My mission was to suss out the vegetarian options. Being a meat eater this was not the first thing I would think of ordering. But with a hungry tummy I set about having a look at what was on offer and was surprised to find an array of enticing mouth-watering vegetarian options.

Cauldron Foods Falafels

Falafels are winning

It was a tough decision but seeing as I’d never had falafel before I thought now was my chance.

It was totally the right choice. The fresh salad, falafel and a little goats cheese dressing were fantastic.

The atmosphere was brilliant. Lots of families and groups of people enjoying lots of delicious food in the sunshine. Plenty of food choices for meat eaters, vegetarians and those somewhere in between. All the vans there could be winners.

I also downloaded a copy of Cauldron’s Street Food inspired recipe book and will be working my way through the delicious recipes!
